Atmel Corp. has rolled its XSense touch sensors that claim to enable development of larger, lighter, sleeker, curved and edgeless designs for smartphones, tablets, Ultrabooks and other touch-enabled devices. According to the company, the product is based on a proprietary roll-to-roll metal mesh technology.

XSense touch sensors provide a high-performance alternative to existing touch sensors, noted Atmel. The company added that the devices are engineered for various touchscreen products, enabling thinner sensor stacks with superior performance and excellent optical clarity.

Boasting advantages such as flawless touch performance, enhanced noise immunity, low sheet resistance and low power consumption, designers will now be able to turn unique touch-based concepts into functional designs at lower costs compared to other market alternatives, indicated Atmel.

XSense touch sensors are sampling with production quantities scheduled to be available in 3Q12.
